Language of the app

To change your preferred language, open your Profile settings on the website via More () > Settings > Language and Units and choose the language you’d prefer from the drop-down list.

The language of the komoot app is selected based on your preset phone language settings. Komoot will automatically run in the first available language from this list. 

If the order is like the following, the komoot app will be in German:

  1. Russian (or any language we do not offer)
  2. German
  3. English

In this case, the app will be in English:

  1. Russian (or any language we do not offer)
  2. English
  3. German 

Language for navigation

The voice instructions are available in the languages listed above and are selected according to your phone settings. If your voice navigation is pronouncing the words in a funny way or is in the wrong language, please check the following:

On most devices the path is Settings > Language & Keyboard, but this may be slightly different for different devices. Komoot uses the first language from your favourite list.

Check if the correct text-to-speech output is installed in the komoot app:

  • Profile () > Settings () > App Settings > Navigation > Check Speech
  • Profile () > Settings () > App Settings > Navigation > Install Language

To adjust the language settings, go to the settings of your iPhone or iPad:

  • Settings > General > Language & Region > Preferred language order

Note: Komoot uses the voice of your system, which is called Siri in your settings. On the latest models, you can choose whether it's a male or female voice: Accessibility > Spoken Content > Voices

Tip: From iOS 13.3.1 or higher, the language of the komoot app can also be changed independently of the mobile settings. To do this, go to iPhone Settings > komoot > Language and select the desired language. With older iOS versions, the rules described above apply.
